CLOSE TO HOME
by Cara Hunter
Viking UK, January 2018
Agent: Johnson & Alcock
When 8-year-old Daisy Mason goes missing Detective Adam Fawley knows that nine times out of ten it’s someone close to home.
And Daisy’s family is certainly strange. Her mother is obsessed with keeping up appearances while her father is cold and defensive under questioning. And then there’s Daisy’s little brother – so withdrawn and uncommunicative…
Fawley is recovering from a recent personal tragedy and is all too familiar with the telltale signs of an unhappy family. As the Masons come under closer scrutiny, secrets begin to unravel and accusations fly. But will the unfolding drama and scandal bring the police any closer to the truth?
